    All I'm going to say is I really hope my nomination shows how much I appreciate this write. Not once have I used up all my nominations in one day.. My goodness that ending is the most raw hard hitting piece I've read in an age and it resonates so much with me

    There are many of us out there to whom this will this will resonate.

    We do not mimic sentiment. We are infuriated. How many have lost friends, lovers or comrades to these acts?

    If I were not past it and were allowed to do so I would join back up.

    The armed forces and governments throughout this planet have tried the hearts and minds game. It did not work and never will.

    The only solution is not one I like to contemplate.


    Amazing poem by the way

    Wow, I am so glad this is nominated. A very strong write that so many of us can really relate to-it's the unthinkable that drives us to do just as your poem says-well done-

    This is brilliant and profound. True and tragic. These lessons never seem to be learned and solutions never found. And repeat.
    I'm so glad this is nominated! x

    We want change but are unwilling to start small changes within our selves... I personally want to change the way things are but can't get past my own dilemma a lot of times. This resonated deep as this is as Kitty puts it...true and tragic. It is very well put, great piece.

    This is the truth about the today's world which we all have accepted.
    BTW, loved how you woven all those emotions into words.
